Ishtar is a strange case. At the time it was released (in 1987), there was a lot of news about the fact that it had gone way over budget. Perhaps that influenced the popular and critical opinion at the time. It got a lot of bad reviews. It also got quite a few good reviews. It lost money at the box office.

However, since then, the film has been re-evaluated by viewers and critics. Most people who've seen it recently think it's reasonably good. I saw it when it came out, and I also think it's reasonably good.
